Carlisle Auctions and the AACA Museum, Inc. team up for upcoming auctions.
Preferred Auction Sponsor

CARLISLE, PA – The Carlisle Auctions team is preparing for its second auction of the year as part of Fall Carlisle 2020. The Fall Carlisle event itself spans September 30-October 4 at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds, while Carlisle Auctions takes center stage at the COVID-19 compliant Carlisle Expo Center on October 1 & 2. The fall auction and at least one other in 2021, will see special support from the AACA Museum, Inc. of Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Beginning with the Fall Collector Car Auction, the AACA Museum, Inc. is on board as the Preferred Auction Sponsor of Carlisle Auctions. This partnership and title will also be in place for Carlisle Auctions first event of 2021, February 19-20, as part of Winter AutoFest in Lakeland, Florida. For these two auctions, the AACA Museum, Inc. team will have a prominent position within the main expo halls of the Carlisle Expo Center and SUN n’ FUN Expo Campus, respectively.

For the fall Pennsylvania event, the café/hospitality area will be recognized as the AACA Museum, Inc. lounge. In addition, each auction day will see the world champion auction team for Carlisle Auctions offer multiple promotional announcements about the museum and their special displays, programs and collections. AACA Museum, Inc. branding will also be visible at the venue, online, in marketing pieces and more.

Finally, and possibly most important, the AACA Museum, Inc. has connected Carlisle Auctions with seven (possibly eight) jaw-dropping consignments for the fall auction and aims to do something similar going forward. Fall consignments include a 1926 Packard 4-Door Club Dietrich, 1926 Wills St. Clair, 1931 Cadillac Town, 1935 Brewster Sedan, 1946 Kaiser Street Rod, 1956 Chrysler Imperial and a 1991 Jaguar XJS. These fine examples of automotive history will be offered over the course of the two-day auction.

“On behalf of myself and the Carlisle Auctions team, we are thrilled to welcome the AACA Museum, Inc. as our Preferred Auction Sponsor,” noted Tony Cline, Director of Auction Operations. “We have enjoyed a great relationship over the years and look forward to working together going forward.”

Vehicles will begin loading in on Tuesday, September 29. All outdoor placements can be viewed by one and all, but ONLY event staff, registered buyers/sellers and guests and select business partners are permitted to enter the Expo Center during the auction. Due to gathering restrictions, general spectators are restricted from entering the Expo Center. The auction starts at 12 p.m. daily and includes an all-truck themed hour on October 1 at about 5 p.m. If a desired lot doesn’t sell, Carlisle Auctions offers a “Still for Sale” option for one last chance at connecting seller and buyer person to person and away from the spotlight of the auction block. “Still for Sale” is available starting October 1 and is available in person for a few days following the event in person and online at for approximately three weeks.

As part of Carlisle Auctions health safety measures, masks will be required for entry and indoors, multiple hand washing/sanitizing stations will be available, restrooms, food and service areas will be regularly cleaned and hopeful bidders are encouraged to pre-register for easier packet pick up. In addition, concession options will be modified.
